Alita: Battle Angel had a hefty price tag, but it ended up performing solidly at the box office, building a legion of fans who want to see that story and that world continued in a sequel. Unfortunately, neither director Robert Rodriguez, James Cameron, nor the studio have said there is a sequel coming, but that isn't stopping fans from letting the studio know how they feel. The calls for an Alita sequel have been going for a while now, but today the calls for a sequel reached a fever pitch thanks to an organized movement on social media, which called for everyone to tweet about the potential sequel at a certain time, and it seems to have worked.
The mission statement was posted on December 5th with the headline "Mission: Make #AlitaSequel Go Trending". You can read the full message below, as well as some of the best responses and reactions to the #AlitaSequel, and there are quite a few of them to choose from.
"We want a sequel to Alita: Battle Angel. The Experience we had in the cinema was remarkable. And we want to feel that magic of the first one again. And since Disney is now in charge with the distribution of Alita, we need to reach out to them to make the Sequel happen.

The #2. reason we need an #AlitaSequel is because we can get dark, contemplative stories like the next arc. If you think Joker had a sad downward spiral, wait until you see this on this heartbreaking story on the big screen. pic.twitter.com/rCpSwXRKWh— TheLast300 [YouTube] (@TheLast_300) December 5, 2019
